, terrorism launched by al qaeda would be. and they're reeling in iraq -- in iran and in pakistan -- rather in afghanistan and pakistan. let's not forget while president bush was reluctant to send drones over the pakistani border, president obama has released them. we're doing the same thing in yemen, another al qaeda center. so we're a lot safer today than we were on 9-10-01 but also a lot safer today the day president obama took office. he's been the toughest president on terrorism we've had. what is our great danger? there are always new terrorists that pop up. different types and they're smart with the internet. they have a lot of knowledge and look for our weak pressure points. that's why we have to stay vigilant all the time. it's not an accident that sense the 9/11 thing there hasn't been a terrorist attack on america. we're doing a much better job, particularly in the ability to listen in to would-be terrorists and find out what they're doing and thwart them before they could launch anything that might hurt us. >> senator schumer, thank you very much for joining us, especially on th

, and indeed, i think next month for the first time, iraq will actually export more oil than iran. so the whole balance of power in terms of oil production in the region is changing as a result of the sanctions. on the other hand, i think as the recent report of the atomic energy authority indicates, there's no sign that iran is relenting on this essential push, and the trouble is it's combined with a regime that holds views and does things that most people within the region find unacceptable. >> one of the views that he held and espoused when he came here before, particularly in new york and america in a wider sense, was what he said about wiping israel off the face of the map. he did clarify this slightly when i interviewed him. listen to this. >> translator: when we say to be wiped, we say for occupation to be wiped off from this world. for war seeking, to be wiped off and eradicated. the killing of women and children to be eradicated. and we proposed a way. we proposed a path. the path is to recognize the right of the palestinians to self-governance. >> do you believe in a two-state solutio
